1/4 RRG Prufling, 1/4 Nemeth Umbrellaplane and either a 1/4 Brandenburg 'Starstrutter', Lloyd 40.15 or Roland DVI. I have drawn the plans for all except the Roland which is an enlargement of the J.Kiger 1/5 set of drawings.

Theres no such thing as a winter project in my garage, I build year round. But if everything goes according to plan, I hope to finish up quite a few plane builds, projects, and rebuilds that I have been working on for quite a while. I want to finish up my Monocoupe 90-a built from plans, finish up a pitts s2s I started framing up a year ago, and also work some more on my 1/2 scale stits sky baby that I have neglected due to lack of time and to much school work.

Wow AH1G! You're a modeled after my own heart! Do you have anything under 100"? LOL!

Well here's my meager list:

Finish my Balsa USA 1/3 scale Ercoupe.
Finish my Hostetler 1/4 scale Cessna Skymaster
If I get bored, build my Bud Nosen 100+ inch P-51

The wing was once done via Bob Holman a few years ago for this. The fuselage (in fiberglass) is available via Doss Steed.

How about a .60 size corsair by royal, it is true to scale in terms of size, meaning if scaled up it is an exact match to the outline of the full size corsair!
I've got the templates all drawn in cad which were done by my friend Kelsey_B
If you want them email me.

You may need to go to BHPLANS.com for that Info.

Was told that Steed died, and someone new took over everything, including the retracts.

You may want to hold off a day or two on the Spitfire, for am finding the Trojan plans not too accurate.

Wouldn't this look cool on the flying field? How often among the Cubs, Mustangs, Zeros, and the myriad of modern jets, do you see one of these?[&:][&:]

Starting my build of a Hatz biplane. Using AMA plans but changing the fuselage to be built more like the Smith Miniplane fuse.
Has anyone ever built this plane?

I too build all year long, but I especialy like the winter because those evenings are so long and I get allot done. Plus, no yard work to worry about.
So, I'll be starting my 1/3 BUSA Super Cub soon. I should be painting and finishing by early spring.

I started on this plug for a 42" Yak a couple of years ago, then put it up. It is now time to dust it off and put it back on the front burner.

My hope is to finally get a Travel Air 6000 on the boards for a 98" build. I've the plan, wood, wheels, and dummy radial in the closet ready to go and have finished other repair projects. The project has been a desire for a year now.

1/5 scale Pica Waco going on the table after I finish my Rebel and TF P-47 60 size. Should happen sometime in December, just in time for Santa to bring me a DLE 20 for the power.

That Chipmunk will be a nice project, and nice size. What engine you have lined up for it?

Hey Jeff, I'm going with a DA-150. Although I'm building N13Y it will not have retracts. (Not yet anyhow)
Also the single place means a smaller canopy to pull.
Wing will be in 3 pieces. center 60" and the two outers 51".
Also the tail will be removeable. To fit my trailer.[8D]

Later,
Kelly


The man himself!!
